Rise and shine.

Today’s morning sun illuminates the blooms on my Pride of Barbados (Caesalpinia pulcherrima) also known as Red Bird of Paradise.   Whichever, it’s gorgeous.

Tropical & orangeThis is a picture of a flower that surrounded the entrance to the restaurant where went for dinner tonight.  The orange color was very vibrant, even though dusk had set in and the light wasn’t great.

The hostess told us that it is a flower called the Pride of Barbados, which is the national flower of Barbados.  Very pretty!
